Don't worry, I am sure Marvel already has the Red Hobgoblin arc planned..........

If recent history is any indication, there will be Venogoblins and Carnagoblins and Kobolds and Blue Goblins and Black Goblins and Yellow Goblins and Toxic Shock Goblins and Snoop Dogglins and...well, you get the idea...

Agree with RMA about Hobgoblin being a missed opportunity. The Green Goblin was long dead, Spider-Man had no real nemesis for awhile and suddenly this new villain arrives and has everybody going gaga over him. Who is the Hobgoblin was a huge storyline. Hobgoblin could have been the next great Spidey villain. It was so disappointing for him to be Ned Leeds and killed off so disappointingly. 

So when he turned out to actually not be ned  Leeds was that a retcon? 

And I think it would be hilarious if the mcu ned turned into hobgoblin later in this series...maybe post credits of far from home we get this:

Here is mine.  Got it raw at a comic store auction 30+ years ago for $17, if I remember correctly.  I think it's about a VF, and has the tats.

But I also have the 1st Ned Leeds, and 1st Roderick Kingsley.

Technically, but not really. It was the character's creator finally setting the record straight. Hobgoblin Lives explained why the story never made any sense.

The end to the Hobgoblin saga was an editorially mandated mess. Nobody involved was ever happy with it.
